The Vischer Ferry (NY) Volunteer Fire Department’s nearly $4 million plan to expand by roughly 7,000 square feet its Moe Road Station 3 will go before the Planning Board tomorrow, reports dailygazette.com.
Voters approved the plan in December, and, if the board approves, the project would be bid in late 2021 and construction would begin in early 2022.
The project, with a budget of $3.9 million, aims to put the building in compliance with regulations that have changed since its construction in 1982.
The district’s other two stations have been built or renovated to modern standards over the last two decades:
- Station 1 on Riverview Road in Rexford, the department’s main station, was built in 1964, expanded in 1974, and expanded in 1997.
- Station 2 on Grooms Road was constructed in 2007.
